Pedestrians vs. Motor Traffic: No Contest
One of the most dangerous places in the world is the marked crosswalk. Every year hundreds of people are struck down as they make their way to the other side. Many of these victims are schoolchildren or older people. Too many drivers are simply ignoring the rights of individuals to cross the street.
